This second edition, re-titled from Key Concepts for the Fashion Industry, includes expanded coverage on cultural appropriation, corporate greenwashing, and the criminal world of counterfeit goods.

- Illustrated examples, from Apple's post-postmodernist iWatch to Savage X Fenty's body image message on diversity

- Covers core fashion theories, from trickle-down to trickle-up, to political dress and conspicuous consumption

- Filled with learning activities, key terms, chapter summaries, and discussion questions to inspire and inform.
